Sh*t Happened 10/27/16: Hillary visits Tampa, TIA needs a bigger award display case

Let's burn through this, as we assume that like everyone else you're ducking out of work a little early for some desperate last-minute costume-accessory shopping.

World-renowned pantsuit model Hillary Clinton held a rally in downtown Tampa. Trump followers immediately point out his was bigger, insist size is everything, may not be clear on the difference between attending a rally and actually casting a ballot.

Tampa International Airport was rated the 3rd best in the world by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler, coming in behind facilities in Indianapolis and Portland, Oregon. So when you re-weight factoring in places you never wanted to go and places you used to want to go, we're Number 1! (That's called "massaging the data.")

And finally, Busch Gardens reopened its Congo River Rapids ride after shutting it down for a safety inspection in the wake of an accident involving a similar ride at a theme park in Australia. Seeing how the "shutting it down for a safety inspection" lasted about 24 hours, we're guessing this might actually have been more of the "shut it down, wait 30 seconds, and turn it back on" version. Have fun.
